The Downtown Plan is an update to City Centre Plan 2005 and will provide a framework to guide planning and land use management for the Downtown, Sagebrush, and West End neighbourhoods over a 20-year time frame.
The Downtown Plan will offer detailed guidance on the location and types of housing, shops, offices, and other types of development and land uses envisioned for the area. The plan will also provide direction on what parks; community facilities; plazas and public spaces; and the future road, transit, and active transportation networks within the plan area will look like.
The review and update process is now in its third phase. Last year, the City engaged residents on the vision, key issues, and potential development concepts for the Downtown. Based on this feedback, the City has prepared refined development concepts for eight key opportunity sites within the plan area and strategic directions to guide policy development under five key topic areas. To learn more about the emerging vision, refined development concepts, and strategic directions, see the Downtown Plan: Community Conversation Guide.
Please see below for additional key documents from Phases 1 and 2 of the Downtown planning process, including summarized results from Phase 2 community engagement activities, the Downtown Design Charrette process, and the 4th Ave Plaza pilot project.
